(AP) Doug Hanzel won the USGA Senior Amateur on Thursday, beating Pat O'Donnell 3 and 2 in the championship match at Wade Hampton Golf Club.


The 56-year-old Doug Hanzel, from Savannah, Ga., opened a three-hole lead with a par on the par-4 15th and matched O'Donnell's birdie on the par-4 16th to end the match.


A physician specializing in pulmonary critical care at Southeast Medical Group, Hanzal uses an insulin pump to control his diabetes. The 59-year-old O'Donnell, from Happy Valley, Ore., is a reinstated amateur who works as a maintenance analyst for Boeing.


In the morning in the rain-delayed semifinals, Hanzel beat Chip Lutz of Reading, Pa., 3 and 2, and O'Donnell edged Buzz Fly of Memphis, Tenn., 2 and 1.
